Determine a Trench Location
First, we need to assess the property and determine the perfect route for your French drain system. This includes where the water should go and confirm that the end of the trench is in the proper location.
Check the Slop
Water flows to its easiest path of resistance. A sloped French drain will make it easier for the water to flow down to its destination. Our drainage system contractors allow for a minimum slope of 1% during the process, which means we place 1-foot drop in every 100 feet length.
Remove the sod, then dig the trench, considering the vertical sides and smooth sloped bottom. Then, Line the trench with landscape fabric, using a continuous swath.
Fill the Trench
Fill the trench with course drainage gravel, such as crushed granite, so it is flush with the surrounding ground or sod.
